Myself Arunodoy Sarmah. I am working as officer with a psu bank in Assam. I would like to enquire about a small water treatment plant at my home in Guwahati. During winter months we face water shortage issues here in Shantipur hillside area in Guwahati even though we are hardly 5 km from Brahmaputra river. We have 8 families at rented accommodation here and daily water consumption is near about 4000 to 5000 liters. Please guide me through your valuable suggestions.

Most of the ponds in Guwahati are in a sorry state now. They need to be preserved, not just as heritage sites, but also as drinking water providers and collectors of surface runoff.

Guwahati, one of the fastest growing cities in India, is thousands of years old. Once known as Pragjyotishpura or the city of eastern light, Guwahati has many ancient stories attached to it. This beautiful city finds mention in epics such as Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas.
